Family-friendly hotel with a lazy river and outdoor pool
A Grand Strand address and a heated lazy river and outdoor pool are major draws at the Myrtle Beach by Westgate Resorts property, but the children's water play area, Kid’s Club and many planned adult activities elevate its true family resort status. Studios and suites make it easy to go on vacation with the kids thanks to residential amenities like full kitchens, washers and dryers and all the extras. Parents love the fact that kids under 10 eat free with a paying adult.
Highlights
  • Oceanfront studios and two-bedroom suites
  • Kids under 10 eat free with a paying adult
  • Kid’s Club for children 2 to 12
  • Heated outdoor pool and lazy river
  • Close to attractions
Rooms

Guests enjoy beach and city views from the studios and suites, which incorporate tropical accents like palm-inspired lamps and coastal artwork. Even the studios have a place to make a meal -- each is equipped with a kitchenette complete with mini-refrigerator, two-burner stovetop, microwave and toaster. Suites have full-sized kitchens as well as utensils, dishware, pots and pans. Suites also come with a washer and dryer.

Features

A heated outdoor pool and lazy river and Kid's Club keep the kids occupied. Potty-trained children ages 2 to 12 are welcome to play video and board games and make arts and crafts -- all under the supervision of staff.

 

Adults, meanwhile, participate in the multiple planned activities on site, from jewelry making to Mary Kay facials and feet treatments. Fees may apply.

Expected more

Based on the pictures online, I was expecting to arrive at a clean, modern, comfortable hotel. What I got instead was a crowded, run down, dirty hotel in need of a major upgrade. The bathroom was not clean and I felt the need to wear shower shoes while showering. The toilet ran the entire time & the AC worked only sometimes. Lastly, there are huge cockroaches roaming the halls and on our last day we found one in our room.

Not really pleased to travel during 3rd July hurricane. Hotel front desk staff was rude on the phone, didn't even care abt the guess traveling during hurricane. Also please don't stay if you are not the owner of this property.

Pleasant stay at the Westgate Resort

This hotel was very kid friendly which is exactly what we were looking for. It was right across the street from the amusement park and convenient to the beach. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The young lady who checked us in was extremely helpful. She upgraded us to an oceanfront suite at no additional cost after the room we were originally sent to was not what we expected or booked. All staff were super pleasant and made it a great stay.

mother/ daughters weekend

We had a fabulous stay at the Westgate. I know some reviews complained about being feeling they were sucked into a timeshare deal, but that was not the case with our stay. We booked our stay like we would any other hotel. The staff was very courteous. The rooms were clean and well supplied. The location was perfect. How much better can you get than oceanfront with pool, outside hotel restaurant, activities for kids and sun! Was pleasantly surprised since we usually book with well known hotel chains and this was evenly comparable . I would even say the staff was very accommodating to our needs. I would recommend this hotel to others. Thank you Westgate for a fun Weekend with my daughters.

The week before The Season started

We had a room at this resort / timeshare booked for three nights the week before official vacation season started. We had a room that faced the ocean and had a balcony - so that part was perfect. The walls were paper thin (the woman next door had a boyfriend that she left at home, AND she got new underwear for this trip), and there were some small roaches in the bathroom (granted - that is a function of being in the humid south and not of cleanliness but it still startles you in the middle of the night). It is a timeshare resort, and the owner is David Seigel of Queen of Versailles notoriety. The sales force is omnipresent but not aggressive about approaching people who haven't expressed an interest. To make the resort special for owners, some basic hotel amenities are not available to people using it as a hotel. The intention of this trip was never to have an amazing hotel, we wanted a great view and easy beach access. We got what we needed in terms of view and access.

I absolutely loved our room. The view was amazing! It would have been nice if the sliding door had a screen due to the black bugs that were all over but other than that it was great.
